‘Aquaman’ Director Reveals Deleted Flashback Scene With Arthur Curry

Aquaman director James Wan revealed one of the deleted scenes from the DC film during an interview with ComicBook.com.

Aquaman will expand the DC Extended Universe by exploring new worlds, including the Kingdom of Atlantis, and diving into the backstory of lead hero Arthur Curry. Of course, with so much to cover in a single film, some material had to be cut for the theatrical release and James Wan shared details on at least one scene he hopes will be included on the home media release:

 “I count one or two scenes ultimately that I didn’t feel like it moved the narrative forward in a big way, and already I’m like the movie is a bit longer than I would like, and so you’re trying to find stuff just to cut down. And so there was one scene that hopefully will be on the Blu-Ray or DVD, and that is how Arthur learned to breathe underwater for the first time.”

However, Wan assured fans that the omitted scenes were not essential to the story:

“I know it sounds very important, but it being a flashback scene, I really felt like I had too many flashbacks as it were, and that I didn’t want to cram another one in there. And I felt like it was the only one that I could lose without having the narrative suffer.”
